    Snowboarder Red Gerard, a 17-year-old from Colorado, was sitting in last place heading into the third and final run Sunday in men's slopestyle.

    Like many riders, he had struggled to land a clean run on his first two attempts. But when the pressure was on, he delivered.

    With a brilliant third run, he locked up a gold medal, the first U.S. medal of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

    His teammates took to Twitter to help him celebrate.

    "CONGRATS @RedmondGerard!!! Snowboard slope gold for USA! You're a boss!," wrote skier Gus Kenworthy.
